Wow, a brand new Forum. A fresh sheet of paper. I just wanted to thank the Archive for being here and say welcome to all who enter this Forum in the Future.....All movies and TV shows are made up of small clips brought together. If you are an editor, I hope the clip you need is here somewhere. If not, I suggest you make a request in this Forum. You might find someone has just the clip you need.
It never hurts to ask.

I'll drink to that! I think this is the best thing since (pardon my lack of creativity) sliced bread.

Ian Bridgewater, Hello Ian, I really enjoyed your Flawed Family Flick series. I was thinking of doing a similar thing for Mum. I would really like to find the source of the intro clips if you could point me in the right direction. I could put them to good use, but maybe with a different music track. Also, I have some material lined up clip wise, but I am really struggling with text overlay, like your flawed family title. What program could I use to overlay a title like that?

Thanks for posting these by the way. They are genius.

Hello, and thank you for the kind comments. I regret that I can't help you much. This video was produced for fun many years ago and I have produced too many videos since then to remember how I set up the opening. I would be willing to bet that all the opening clips came from the Feature Films or Prelinger sections of the Internet Archive. That narrows it down to about 4000 videos. I would start by looking at silent flicks in those two sections. As for the titles, most any simple video editing system ($50.00 to $100.00) will add titles like I used here. I use an old version of Vegas Video now, (and I like it) but I have used MGI video and several other NLEs over the last 15 years and they all had titleing. Most any video editing system today will do it. I hope that helps a little. Good luck on your video! Best Wishes, Ivan :)

Hello Ivan,
Thanks for the reply. The resource is so vast, there is a wealth of footage here that I can use, so while my aim is to produce something similar to your early productions, I am able due to the choice available to produce several different projects. I look forward to that, and the support of the forum members.

Thanks again
